debate. gay marriage, what effect will it have on our military families. our legal expert explains. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com it is sunday, october 21st. good morning, everyone. i'm randi kaye. i'm glad you're with us. iran has agreed to unprecedented one-on-one talks with iran is just not true. according to "the new york times," they have agreed to meet on iran's controversial nuclear program. iran has insisted it will deal after the new president is in office so they know who they're following. there was an attack. john kerry is furious for oversight committee for releasing sensitive cables.
he said darrell issa has exposed leb ya nationals of working with the u.s. to possible danger. t now, issa's spokesman said kerry and the administration are just trying to create a distraction. ohio's largest newspaper is an doorsing president obama for the second straight time, but it's not entirely happy about it. the "cleveland plain dealer" says mr. obama's litany of missed opportunities left it sorely intent of voting for romney but it said the president still has an opportunity to continue with economic growth after the brink of depression. the "reno gazette-journal" say s obama cannot avoid the consequences of poor decisions and misplaced priorities.
the president has shown little understanding of how his failures are affecting the nation. congressman jesse jackson jr. speaking out publicly for the first time since going out publicly. he's been getting treatment at the mayo clinic for depression. in a recorded message to constituents he said he hopes to return to capitol hill but isn't quite ready yet. >> for the past few months i've undergone medical treatment to address several serious health issues. a series of ee haven'ts came together in my life at the same time and they've been difficult to sort through. i am human. i'm doing my best. and i'm trying to sort through them all. i'm starting to heal. the good news is my health is improving. but my doctors tell me the road to recovery is a long one. i'm anxious to return to work on your behalf, but at this time it's against medical advice. >> jackson, son of civil rights leader jesse jackson, is running for re-election in his district.
the chicago true bun reporting jackson could be headed back to the mayo clinic this week. well, it has been a busy weekend for lance armstrong. he made his first public appearance at his favorite charity where he described a, quote, difficult couple of weeks following a report of the anti-doping agency accusing him of using performance enhancing drugs. but armstrong also talked about the importance of his group's work in the fight against cancer. >> this mission is bigger than me. it's bigger than any individual. there's 28 million people around the world living with this disease. martin luther king said once, he said, we must accept finite disappointment but never lose infinite hope. >> and live strong's mission will be on full display where thousands of cyclists are expected to show support for
cancer survivors. that's where we find victor. good morning. what did they tell you about their experiences and about the livestrong charity? >> reporter: good morning, randi. today's event the livestrong challenge. it's a ride, not a race. it's a group for cancer survivors, for women who are active in sports and dancing and yoga and swimming and three of them will be cycling today, taking the 65-mile journey. they talked about not only their connection but how they admired lance armstrong after his battle with vesicular cancer coming back and competing in the tour de france. whether he doped or not, they
still call him lance armstrong supporters. i asked them how they separated the anti-doping allegations and livestrong. >> aside from lance armstrong the man, what does livestrong mean to you? >> i totally agree with this statement. you're livestrong. she's livestrong. she's livestrong. because it's the thought behind it. it's the support. yes, you can still do this. you have a life. keep going. don't stop. you know, don't waste any minute of it. >> there's 28 million cancer survivors around the world today 14rks million in the u.s. those numbers have increased since livestrong have been around and they provide a lot of support that never was there before. it's phenomenal. to me, that's the story of livestrong. livestrong's making a difference every day in people's lives. >> reporter: now, the women i spoke with say they don't know
for sure. no one knows for sure. only lance armstrong knows if he indeed doped in the races that he competed in and won. but they call themselves livestrong as well as lance armstrong. >> any chance he'll address the controversy as well? >> reporter: well, if there's any indication of what he spoke about on friday night at the gala, no. he's probably going to have a very encouraging message of telling people to stay focused livestrong. he has not spoken about the allegations publicly. we know this will be the first time many of these cyclists have heard from him in person since he stepped down from the organization that they have this overwhelming evidence that he doped. randi? >> victor, thank you very much. coming up, i'll speak with one
sports markets expert about lance armstrong's brand and what he would advise the cyclist to do right now. and now to california where police believe a shooting suspect is dead after setting fire to his home. desmond john moses is accused of gunning down his next-door neighbor. the father who tried to shield his son from the bullets is dead, so is his 4-year-old son. moses was reportedly being effected from his home after not paying rent for years. neighbors described him as, quote, really weird. police are still working to identify what they believe are mos mos moses' remains. >> we're still continuing a search of the structure that was damaged in the fire. the individual appears to have been a hoarder. there's a lot of material in there. the roof collapsed, so we've had to bring in a backhoe to dig through the rubble to determine whether or not the individual is still in there, mr. moses is in
there. we do not know. two more people have died from fungal meningitis infections raising the total deaths to 23 now. the center for disease control reported 13 yesterday. morehan 280 people have been sickened with fungal meningitis in 16 states. health officials believe they were contaminated with steroid injections. it's not contagious but thousands may have been exposed to these shots. in rhode island there was a memorial for the ten people who died in the fire. 100 people died. the owner decided last month he will donate the land. today's a huge day for roman
catholics. he's canonized the first saint, lily of the mohawks. she lived in the 17th century but she mir aculously cured a boy. >> i never thought we would see this day because we've been praying for the can can onizati >> there are six others who will also be canonized. we'll check out the punch line s as we get closer to round three. questions?

that didn't stop others from getting out there and holding rallies for them. comedian jeff fox worthy took his comedy on the road. >> if you've ever done business in the back of a pickup truck, you might be a redneck. and former white house chief of staff rahm emanuel went to florida to campaign for the president. >> it's an election with clear choices. there's not a lot of gray area here. both president obama and governor romney have what it takes to move forward. >> what can we expect from tomorrow night's foreign policy debate, some would say could make or break this year's election. paul steinhauser has a preview. >> good morning, randi. i think it's more than fair to say there's a lot at stake in the final debate. >> not true, governor romney. >> tuesday's debate may have
just been the appetizer. when president obama and mitt romney face off tomorrow night expect them to pick up on china and libya following tuesday. >> on the day following the united states ambassador, the first time that's happened in 1979 when we have four americans killed there, when apparently we didn't know what happened, that the president the day after that happened flies to las vegas for political fund-raiser. >> and the suggestion that anybody in my team, whether the secretary of state, our u.n. ambassador, anybody on my team would play politics or mislead when we've lost four of our own, governor, is offensive. that's not what we do that's not what i do as president. >> also on the agenda tomorrow night. terrorism, the war in afghanistan, israel, and iran. unlike their first two face-offs, this time the two candidates will be sitting around the table along with the

welcome back. taking a look at this morning, brahimi is in the country meeting with officials, he's urging both sides of the conflict to declare a unilateral cease-fire for this weekend's muslim holiday. the country's prime minister benjamin netanyahu said the ship was trying to, quote, blacken israel's name. the people aboard the ship said they were trying to call
attention to human rights. and across the mediterranean, the authorities are reporting a boom in guess what? in homegrown marijuana. advocated argue that smokers would rather grow their own because the stuff coming from eastern europe could be contaminated and because they don't want their drug money going to organized crime. growing your own pot remains illegal but the sale of marijuana seeds apparently is just fine. they're now calling for a day of rage in response to the country's most high-profile assassination in more than seven year. in the country's capital beirut a large car bomb was designated kills their intelligence chief and two other people. nick paton walsh is joining me now. good morning, nick. >> police aren't giving word yet, but the investigation is
progressing and the judge in charge has asked for surveillance of phone tap records for that particular area to try to work out who may be behind this. but the blame game has been going on since this act started, blaming the resheem says they were behind this act. there's no concrete evidence tying them to it. but all the same, he says he believes it's likely that syria was involved in this. he refers to it as a syrian tragedy. as i say, no evidence to that. syria has condemned the blast itself as has theal lie. but the scenes you're seeing now are of the funeral playing out where this rage, many hoping it would gain something. many believe there could be more sectarian elements to this particular protest. many people here aligned to the same pro western coalition.
the dead top intelligence official was aligned to. many of the flags, many of them sectarian groups as well. the hope is it passes with solemnity. many people are expecting an outpouring of not only grief but rage as well. randi? >> and, nick, as we continue to look at these live pictures, they've called for a huge antisyrian demonstration. so what kind of crowds -- we can see a bit of it there, but how big is this going to get? >> i can't really give you an accurate estimate. but we were hearing it for the whole country to come out on the streets. but we'll be looking at tens of thousands. tens of thousands deserted. this is going to go from the police headquarters where he was
a central figure. they're gathering momentum. the former prime minister rafik rah fearry killed in a car bomb. at the request, in fact. of hariri's son. a deeply involved. but the fear is the uneasiness that many have felt, that that may somehow turn into rage and unrest. >> some of that fear about more violence spilling over from syria? >> that's always been the risk. a syrian conflict as you know has rumbled on for 19, 20 months now and it's very much along sectarian lines. there are many more ethic groups that play and ethic groups that play. and as the war rumbled on next door, the violence would spill
over but so many have aligns. people had hoped in the months past they would avoid that, but that plaft so central in beirut, targeting such a key figure in lebanon's secure elite made many fear they hoped to avoid the state here of working so hard with this policy of disassociation to keep itself out of that war. that may not be working. randi? >> nick paton walsh. thank you for the update. lance arm strong could lose his seven tour de france titles. it's not just about the yellow jerseys and the seven medals. we'll take a look. ♪ keys, keys, keys, keys, keys. ♪ well, he's not very handsome ♪ to look at [ sighs ] ♪ oh, he's shaggy

string of lawsuits over his millions in endorsement deals. now here to discuss what ee at state is robert tuckman in new york. good morning. >> good morning. >> let's talk about the deal. he's lost nike, anheuser butch, radioshack, trek, honey stinger. how much money are we talking about here? >> basically if you look at all the deals and take into account how many, the number i would put it at that he'll lose personally sproebl around, you know, the course of his lifetime, maybe 150 to $250 million. >> that's a lot of money. >> it sure is. >> what about the lawsuits? because we've already heard about an insurance company that could fire to reklain bonus money arguing that his doping would make that contract null and voice. what else might we see?
>> yeah. that's a really good point because there could be potential lawsuits. a lot of these endorsement deals have clauses in them that if something like this would happen, there's outs where they can retrieve money, so, he's really up against potentially paying back millions of dollars that he's already earned. >> and cnn spoke with one who said he wants his money back, that it was built on a lie. i want you to hear what he said. >> the results of mr. armstrong's tour de france directly benefitted the livestrong foundation. they rebanded it. he cheated and cheated, you know, beyond many people's beliefs or imagination for those results in the tours de-france so, the whole thing is built on
a lie. >> robert do, you expect more of this to come? >> this is the difficult part and really a shame because what lance armstrong has done and created for livestrong has benefitted so many people so, many cancer patients. and really that's not a lie. what lance armstrong did with livestrong is really a huge positive. anyone who would want their money back, you know, because it was built on whatever premise of about lance armstrong, you know, i don't agree with. but i certainly understand companies that may have endorsed him as a product endorser, those lawsuits i could certainly understand, but something along those lines, it's unfortunate. we'll probably see more people like mr. birdsong who want their money back. >> sales of the yellow bracelets are up. there are a lot of fans sticking behind him. >> that's the great news, the
positive of all of this is really what lance armstrong has done, you know, for cancer patients and that's it. people are coming forward and they're putting more money into this charity because the charity and everything he's done there is on the up and up, and they've done some wonderful things. it's really unfortunate because mr. armstrong and the charity he created was really built on his reputation and survival and, you know, that obviously we look at now and it's a little bit of a farce, but unfortunately -- or fortunately rather, livestrong will continue after he steps down. >> if he was your client, what would you recommend to him right now? >> well, the first thing i would recommend would be to definitely come forward and admit, you
know, what has gone on. it's extremely evident that he participated. not only participated but orchestrated, you know, an entire doepg scandal. and cycling itself, you know, he's not the only one, mr. armstrong. it was widespread. if he was a client of mine, i would say come out, be honest. if you look at past people who have been in trouble and have endorsed products, the first thing they've done is come out. they'll admit it. america is a great country. there's people wlrks it's michael vick or any of these other celebrities or athletes, people come back and they'll support you and you'll get endorsement deals. so unfortunately lance is lance and i don't think he ee's ever that. it's his ability to come back and fight. i don't think he may ever give in. >> do you think, though, there is still hope he can save his reputation and image here?
>> this is a really tough one because i think if you look at past situations, whether it's tiger woods, michael vick as i mentioned, this is about cheating and competition and everything is directly related for what he did in doping to his achievements. it's really unfortunate because he's a tremendous athlete. unfort natsly this is going to taint that because this really is all about cheating and scandal, and that -- that's why you look at nike coming forward and having that terse statement and get rid of him after they've had such a strong relationship pause it goes against the grain of what a company wants when they endorse someone. they want fairless and competition and this is just saying that all of that was a complete lie that and a lot of fans, there are many that still support him.
robert tuchman from go viva. >> thanks for having me. unconstitutional. so what impact could it have for same-sex couples, both civilian and in the military? our legal expert weighs in.

conclude that section 3 of the defense of marriage act violates equal protection and is therefore unconstitutional. good morning. >> good morning. good to see you. >> good to see you as well. you say that the fact of this case focuses on section 3 is unique. how so. >> it's unique because most of the problems is section 2 which says one state doesn't have to recognize the gay marriage in another statement. there are two prongs and this is on section 3, not section 2. it's interesting. >> the court also said government deals with marriage as a civil status with doma ruled understand constitutional in two states, what exactly does that mean for guy couples? >> i think what it means is the government is looking at it pure.
you may be opposed to it or not or the church may believe in it or cannot. but it's a government thing. if the state wants to say it's legal, that state has the right to say legally they can mair. it's separate church and state. >> many believe that this will be eventually taken up by the supreme court. are you confident of that as well? >> i think it's coming. there are a lot of political issues. we're getting there. sooner or later the supreme court is going to have to put a stop to it and say this is the law of the land or wait for congress to do something, which doesn't seem like it's going to happen. >> if they do take it up, how much will the lower court's decision matter? >> it's saying gay people have been unrepresented by authority and i think the sproort court does need to do something sooner or later because it's going keep coming up. the point of the supreme court is to say here's what the law
should be at least on federal issues and full faith and credit. >> so is this the case, though, for the supreme court, do you think? is this the one that they'll take? >> i don't think so. if there was a unique enough case that had parted of section two and three overturned that might be the propose case, but they may not want to wait forever. >> the military added additional same-sex benefits for troops. but the defense department says -- so for our servicemembers, is the supreme court ruling their only way to get full benefits or only hope? >> that's there's that and the act of congress. even then it's going to take some time because agency and procedures and administrative rules have to recognize what
doma has done now that it's gone away. it's going to be some time. >> can the military act on its own in other ways? >> it's subject to regulationre. >> i'm not going to hold you to it, but you think doma is going to go away. >> that's the thought. >> i'm marking it down. each week we are shining a spotlight on the top cnn heroes of 2012 as you vote for the one who inspires it. this week's honoree is a single mother from haiti who entered her personal trauma into a fight for justice. >> translator: two years after the earthquake, the situation is still the same. the people are still under the tents. they don't have electricity. there is no security where they sleep. they are getting raped. in haiti, things are very
difficult. before the quick, there were rapes happening. now i can say it is total disorder. >> translator: adults are not spared, mothers are not spared, even babies are not spared. my name is mayla villard appolon. i am a victim of violence. i'm on mission to eradicate it so others do not fall victim. we do awareness in the camps. we were working in 22 camps after the earthquake. now we are trying to work in others.
we tell people to come out of silence. do not be victimized. we offer support. we have a call center, we company the victim to the hospital. and we have a safe house program. for me, the first thing is justice that i want. i was a victim, and i did not find justice. i know i will get first other women that are victims. we have to fight so we can say what was said in the past. beloved haiti. this is a great nati. there will be a challenge. . the top cnn heroes for 2012 have been revealed and to vote for who you think should be the hero of the year, just go to cnnheroes.com. we'll reveal the hero on december 2nd during our cnn
dead. so is his 4-year-old son. moses who was renting a home from the family may have been evicted. police are working to identify what they believe may be his remains. >> the tsa is removing its controversial body scanner from different airports. it's two-fold. too much radiation and too little privacy. they have new millimeter wave scanners. they rely little waves instead of blurred pictures of their bodies these new machines display cartoon bodies. soon, people will be allowed to hunt the gray wolves. the wolf population is growing.
they were on the endangered species list from 174 until earlier this year. more women are heading back into the work force as the economic recovery picks up steam. men and women each saw a job gain of 57,000 last month and this november women voters will be critical in deciding if president obama remains in the white house or if mitt romney becomes its newest occupant. yesterday i spoke with lilly ledbetter. the lilly ledbetter pay act was the first act signed by mr. obama. i asked lily who answered the question better. >> absolutely president obama talked about having the ledbetter bill being the first bill that he signed into the law when he first went into the white house and he's exactly right and he talked about that he wanted equal pay because his grandmother who worked all those
many hours in the bank was by passed and he wanted to be sure that his daughters swrould a fair chance to be given the equal opportunity to work and be treated like anyone's son. and when he is so committed to the women's causes. like he said, it's not just families. when you're talking about a woman, you're talking about a family issue. >> let me ask you about another comment that governor romney made related to women. listen to this. >> we took a concerted effort to go out and find women who had backgrounds that could be qualified to become member of our cabinet. i went to a number of women's groups and said can you help us find folks and they brought us whole binders full of women. >> of course, lily, the binders full of women getting a lot of attention. what was your reaction to that? >> that was very degrading and
he was dishonest with that comment because he did not go out and get those binders as he put it. those resumes were laying on his desk when he was sworn in as governor of massachusetts. the women's organizations had prepared and gathered those resumes and had them there in trying to promote more women in the cabinet and the state jobs in massachusetts. governor romney did not go out and get them. that was degragd when he called them binders. >> let me ask you. women did not bounce back as well as men. the gap is now closing and 3,000 women have found work in the last six months but is this still a concern for you? >> women are bouncing back and a lot of the women have gone back to schools and training programs and they're getting additional
training. they are bouncing back and more women are finding jobs just like more member are today. the employment rate is -- the unemployment rate is down and we're growing and we're on a forward move. that's why i feel so strongly that president obama needs another four years to complete the job and the mission he has started to get this country back on track and i think we're going in the right direction. in fact, i know we are. and it's like president clinton said. not any one human being could have turned this country around in the first four years. >> and you can see much more of my interview with lilly ledbetter. j just go to my blog at cnn.com/randi and you'll find it there. experience god with help from deepak chopra. the guru discusses his latest book.
